Updated: 23 February 2018

From Asian to Mexican cuisines and soul food to pizza, some of the city’s best restaurants offer delicious and satisfying vegetarian and vegan options. These are not the city’s 10 best strictly vegetarian restaurants, but, in our opinion, some of the best restaurants for vegetarians.
